Newport Distilling Company

Brent, Derek, Mark, and Will, the four founders of Coastal Extreme Brewing, learned the science of fermentation while attending Colby College together. After their early success they expanded to create the Newport Distilling Company and began making rum whose recipe was inspired by the history of Newport, RI. They scoured the archives at the Newport Historical Society for old recipes and production methods, and now make rum that proudly stands next to their fine brews.
